Muhlenberg Thursday Film Matinee - Cesar Chavez


August 14, 2014

The story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers.

His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the world.
